    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    And I just realised I shouldn't really have brought this up due to the 1984 rules re: PPRs (they do not exist, they have never existed), but it is irritating seeing someone who's in need of help and isn't getting it at home.

    I do think he's genuine. He's posted here before under different names. Unfortunately, he has anger management issues linked to a medical condition and would frequently become frustrated and lash out, leading to him being banned several times. It's a shame, because he clearly needs help and isn't getting it, but at the same time he can't expect to keep coming back here and being awful to people. I really wish he'd get the help he needs "IRL" instead of coming back here and ending up frustrated because we can't fix things for him.

    I don't know if it's a kink or if he just doesn't get the social etiquette surrounding talking about your nethers. Either way, I felt it was safer to ignore that bit. I only recommended seeing his doctor for the medical aspect he mentioned when someone else highlighted that part of his OP and would have left it there.

    If he was genuinely in need of help, what you said was very helpful.

    Penitent, I know the thread you are talking about.

    I know the posting history of the poster

    He has a kink about his small penis and likes to get strangers online to indulge him. I couldn't pm you to warn you so I had to report the thread

    I am now irritated by Warwickshire. If you live in the middle of Coventry, you are under Coventry City Council and are part of the W. Mids. If you go north, east or south, you're under Warwickshire County Council and one of several Borough Councils (with all the stuff Councils do split between them in a non-intuitive way), but you may still have Coventry in your postal address.

    Whoever came up with this arrangement should be peed on.

    It is extremely sad there are people not getting the help they need.

    Unfortunately this isn't the place. We can only advise to which agencies they need to contact

    As for the small thing mentioned, if he doesn't get into Mr Angry mode and has managed to get a sympathetic ear, he will turn the conversation to it trying to goad posters into ridiculing him. He's done it before and was trying to again last night. I would never have reported the thread otherwise.
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    I really need to stop reading anything in DT. Why can some folk not discuss anything without belittling or insulting those who disagree with them? Do they not realise how silly they look?

    (Note: she's a nurse, so the best person to ask first before I go to the GP so I don't waste their time.)

    Ha! I was starting to think it was just me that thought it was silly to have the name of one Council in your postal address, to pay your Council Tax to another, but to apply to a yet another one if you need social care. I was having quite the little mental over it earlier.

    I've also just realised that my local GP and my local Job Centre are actually in another county, even though they're technically in the same city as me.

    All councils, government anything, and parking in my local town are all extremely annoying, and should be relegated to a deep, very hot, and gloomy oubliette in the darkest part of the seventh level of Hell.

    Went to town earlier, as its half term there was gangs of kids/teenagers drinking and by their own admission taking drugs, was just starting to eat my food when 15 kids came in and sat down and were loud and witnessed them drinking alcohol, then 5 more came in a while after and stole crisps and drink and cookies from the counter when staff were at the back, I noticed this and one of the kids looked at me and said "what are you looking at you """"""" retard" I called him a little """ he threatened me so I stood up and he ran back to the table picked up a chair and said how he would do me in.

    I walked up to him and told him to go ahead and he ran off, came back minutes later with about 7 older male teens who were threatening me, all thinking they were tough, and even funnily enough a boy who looked no older than 10, more like 8 telling me he would do me in, come on then, and tried spitting on me.

    Decided best bet was to ignore them, the staff member was screaming at them to leave as well, other funny thing was the older teens who were there over 30 minutes at that point (none bad bought any food from the moment they entered) suddenly looked afraid of me and uncomfortable and "decided" to leave (I was sitting at table next to them)

    Didn't want to leave myself just yet as there was at least 30 in total right outside the door and even though they were kids, (though a few older teens) they had the numbers and even if I fought back likely I would be in trouble with the police.

    Eventually left 20 minutes later and the older teens were outside, they did I notice walk on other side of road but tried mocking me calling me the fatty weirdo, then when I ignored them one dropped his bottle of vodka on the ground and laughed.

    Some half term this is!
